4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Says to drink by June 23 2013, so I figure this is beerís likely not more than a couple months old. Poured into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Almost crystal clear with a very slight haze; orange in color. Thereís about a two finger head after the pour, but it isnít long before itís just a film on top. Lacing is pretty spotty from top to bottom.
Smell: I first thought it really smelled like womanís shampoo with spices in it. That sounds odd, but it really did -- and not in a bad way at all. It smells great. As it warms up a tad, I find that it smells a lot more like a quality pale ale with a valiant blend of hops and malt. Probably the high light of this beer.
Taste/feel: Sweetness with the hops up front, that develops into more hops... and then more hops... and then finishes with the bitterness, with the flavor of caramel malts coming in to balance the hops. Itís odd to me, because the hops seem sweet, and the malts seem bitter. Hey, Iím not complaining. The Citra (I believe theyíre Citra) hops, as usual, provide a very juicy quality to this beer, and the slight malty and spicy aftertaste on this beer makes it all the more satisfying. This is a great pale ale that has the bitterness of an IPA, but more overall qualities of an APA. Definitely a tasty pale ale worth seeking out. For the best flavor, I say take it out of the fridge five minutes before drinking it -- itís when itís at its best, I think.

355 ml bottle into shaker. Slightly hazy bronze beer with thin white sudsy head. A few tiny bubbles ascend. A slight zinginess, lingering finish. A bit fruity, a touch of malt, some subtle hop touchs. This is a beer that develops with every swallow. As it warms more flavours appear. But itís so easy drinking Iíve finished it! Shouldíve bought two........

Versa di colore dorato scuro con schiuma lieve e bianca non molto durevole. Aroma floreale o erbaceo molto "primaverile" se vogliamo. In bocca Ť altrettanto floreale ben bilanciata con líamaro del luppolo.Secca e liscia il giusto. Gradevole e soddisfacente.
